"Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day." ~ Henri Nouwen
Yeah, well, I haven't been very good at the above lately. As you all know I have been suspiciously missing from twitter and blogging. Many, many thanks to those of you who called or emailed to check on me.
I took another hit, but this time I choose to not complain publicly about it. I drew inward and worked it out in my head. I choose the old adage "if you don't have anything good to say then don't say anything at all".
But, with a smile on my face, I can honestly say that I am back and I can't wait to see what my wonderful blogging friends have been up to. I am afraid to jinx it, but with extreme caution I will say that once again my life is pretty darn good.
I have even managed to stumble upon some very unexpected joy in my life (no, I have not adopted another dog!). I took a leap of faith and said “yes” to something I wasn’t sure about. I am still not sure. I can tell you though that unexpected joy is sometimes the most satisfying.
“Our brightest blazes of gladness are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks”. ~ Samuel Johnson
